What is most valuable?

It has a full view of the organization's network and the Wireless LAN security is on the same screen. It really makes sense to have the whole solution on the same screen. In comparison, other solutions do not do this.

What needs improvement?

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We find the price comparable to other products on the market.

What other advice do I have?

When choosing a solution, be sure to run a proof of concept of the products you are considering. If the price is very low, be sure to evaluate why it is a lower-priced product.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are familiar with other systems on the market such as: Cisco, Aruba, and Huawei.
